“Sambo has gained great popularity in Mongolia because it is analogous to our national martial arts in many ways. Mongolians break into sambo since childhood in order to grow strong and skilled. Sambo trainings for kids are critical for strengthening their bones.  And that is yet another key factor to our success in international competitions”, - said head coach of Mongolian sambo national team Jamsrandorj Bayarsaikhan.
